Reprinted from N. England Historical and Genealogical Register for Jan., 



The following facts were obtained for the greater part from a 
copy of an old manuscript, the original of which was written by 
John Haynes (b. 1684) describing the families of his great grand- 
parents Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes, who came to this country 
together and located in Sudbury. This was written later than 1772, 
since it gives that date, and was probably prepared when the writer 
of the original was nearly 90 years of age. The manuscript was 
found among the papers of his grandson Samuel Haynes (b. 1737) 
by the latter's grandson Wm. F. Haynes, and a copy was made by 
his cousin Clark Lewis Haynes (b. 1807) the grandfather of the 
present writer, Frederick Haynes Newell. 

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary gives many of the more impor- 
tant of these names and dates, and a comparison shows a remarkably 
close agreement in details. The old manuscript, however, gives 
much information of the fourth generation and children succeeding 
— facts not otherwise recorded so far as has been ascertained. For 
historical narrative concerning Walter Haynes, Peter Noyes and 
their sons, reference should be made to the History of Sudbury, 
Mass., by Alfred Serano Hudson, published by the town in 1889. 
1. Walter 1 Haynes was born in England in 1583, in the town of 
Sutton, Mancleville, county of Wilts.* He also owned a house and 
out-buildings in the village of Shaston, situated in the island of 
Purbeck, in the south-eastern portion of Dorsetshire. He, with 
family and servants, arrived in Boston in 1638, in ship Confidence 
(see Savage, also Register vol. ii. p. 108). In the same ship came 
Peter Noyes, yeoman, of Penton, county of Southampton, with 
children and servants. 

AV alter Haynes was a linen weaver, and was 55 years of age 
when he came to this country. About a year after his arrival, he 
with others removed from Watertown, having obtained a grant for 
a township named Sudbury, where they settled Dec. 22, 1639. He 
was made freeman 1640, was representative in the years 1641, 1644, 
1648 and 1651, and was one of the Selectmen of Sudbury for ten 
years. He died Feb. 14, 1665, aged 82. (See Whitman's History 
of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, 1842, p. 97.)
